Foot Health Month 2019

Foot Health Month - April 2019

Together we can raise awareness of podiatry

Our Foot Health Month campaign for 2019 has now come to an end. This year, the campaign focused on how to keep your feet healthy, and raising awareness and understanding of podiatrists as the health specialists for foot and lower limb pain and problems.

As part of this year's campaign, we are also reaching into GP surgeries with foot health leaflets and posters. These will be displayed in 5000 GP surgeries around the UK, during March to June, so pick up a leaflet and learn about good foot health. Find out more about our GP surgeries campaign here.

What makes a good podiatrist?

Caring. Wanting to help people, to relieve their pain and strain and help them live healthier and more independent lives, is the most important quality you need to study and work as a podiatrist.

Comfortable working with your hands. Podiatry is a hands-on job, often calling for a lot of manual skill.

People skills. People can be nervous about letting someone treat their feet and lower limbs. Podiatrists need to put patients at their ease and show them there’s nothing to be embarrassed about.
